The Ishim Under Ground | Eron's Story
After the young scribe sabotages his career prospects and loses his contract
to dig latrines on the farthest corner of Auckland, he accidentally frees a slave and gets cast out of the village.
With no possibility of going home, he joins the flow of nomads traveling the road systems on the eastern waste, hoping to find a group of monks who might take him in.
Eron's first encounters with the island's non-citizen population goes poorly. He's robbed by old women and a wild boy who wants
to join the elite ranks of the highwaymen that patrol the roads and wear highly versatile leather hats. Events and circumstance
eventually force Eron to accept that modern scientists gave life to myth through their lost technologies. After joining with thieves, he begans to imagine a life more noble
than cleaning, sorting and updating catalog files for the city archive.

The author did great job of showing me the character, and leading me through his story, so much so, I found myself peeking around the corner looking for what was next. - Phil
It felt like a warm 'emergency-jumper', the one you throw on to slob about at home in and is always the most comfortable item in your wardrobe. I'm a big fan of this book. - Simon
